Oh, how we love Coraline. Really, we do. She has the most lovely personality: perky, affectionate, curious. She is fearless, and hilarious.
Now that all the other hens have lost their chickie peeps and got their big girl clucks, Coraline continues to produce the most charming “boop, boop, boop” sounds. She is the only hen I can identify without even looking.
And she lays like a champion! All our hens are in their first laying year; they will never again lay as prolifically as in this first year, and Coraline is a laying machine! Rare is the day I don’t collect a gorgeous Coraline egg. But more than that, she is a sweetheart, a beauty, a comedienne, and a delight to know.
